New Yorkers Furious After Military Flyover Planned for 9/11 ‘Celebration’

“Tone deaf” and “tasteless”.

For many of us, the horror of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks remains crystal clear in our mind’s eye.  That was a day that cleaves our lives in two, with pre and post-9/11 existence being two desperately disparate existences entirely.

This is a heavy feeling, of course, and it can sometimes feel like a heavy, weighted blanket laying over the top of the entirety of society.  We now live in a world where this can happen, and that’s a line we never thought that we would cross.

And so many of us have chosen to reminisce on 9/11 by remembering what good came out of it:  The unity of the nation, the patriotism, the heroes, and the helpers.  The date itself is still both somber and motivating in that way, but not everyone shares the appropriate balance of horror and heroics.

The New York City Emergency Management’s Notify NYC message indicated that an F-18 jet will conduct a flyover on the Hudson River headed toward the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge at 3:30 p.m. Friday. The aircraft is expected to fly at approximately 2,500 feet.

Rep. Max Rose (D-Staten Island/Brooklyn) slammed the idea Thursday afternoon.

“Are you out of your mind? Cancel this immediately,” Rose wrote on Twitter.

Rose wasn’t the only one.

The office of Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “The mayor wasn’t aware of the flyover, and frankly it’s inappropriate.”

“He looks forward to thanking our heroes and honoring those we’ve lost at the ceremony tomorrow,” a spokesman for the Mayor’s Office said.

The display was similarly lambasted on Twitter as both “tone deaf” and “tasteless”.
